RV parks in Alaska seem to be a lot like the state itself...rough around the edges. In a month travelling here I haven't seen anything I would consider a "class A" park. That being said, this one is as close as we've come. The pads are gravel and at least they don't have a bunch of weeds growing in the middle of them like the last park we went to (although there are a bunch of weeds around the picnic table). The site was relatively level and the line of pull thrus near the office are fairly close together, but not as bad as a lot of places. We had an E & W site, both utilities worked fine. The rest of the sites in the park seem to be more generously spaced. The restroom/shower room is bright and clean although the shower stalls are quite small. I used the handicapped one which was excellent. The shower head was adjustable which is nice and the pressure and hot water were good although a bit hard to regulate. They get high marks for having hair dryers in the washroom though, something I've never seen anywhere else in 16 months on the road except Alaska. I could've lived without the earsplitting loud piped in rock music though. But, whatever. My only complaint was that there are big signs everywhere saying the building is closed from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., so I went to take my shower at 11:20. Nope. The girl "started early" with the cleaning so I had to wait an hour! There is a very nice looking laundry room that I did not use but it has quite a few machines and several bit folding tables which I really appreciate. It's overpriced at $3 per load, but so where the other places I went so I guess that's the going rip-off rate here in AK. The Tengo wi-fi was free but didn't work the first day. Worked ok day two. Verizon signal was strong. Front desk staff was friendly and professional. All in all, even with a few complaints, the price is right and the value is good, especially for Alaska. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Stayed here in a minivan. Rate is for a tent spot without electric. Also had a Good Sam discount. Showers and bathrooms were clean, hot showers were nice. Laundry room was clean as well, however pricey. $3.00 to wash, $3.00 to dry each load. I don't know how that compares to other camps in Alaska as this was our first laundry day. Tent spots are in a treed area that provides shade and decent privacy. There are also a few shaded RV spots near the tent area. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Truck Camper.
